Customer address data management for countries outside the UK
Utilising our extensive experience of working with more than 100 local authorities in the UK, we have adapted our suite of address creation and management products to benefit nations or regions that have a lack of structured, formal addressing.
Our national addressing solutions can be broken down into two key stages:
National Street Naming & Numbering (NSNN)
Our National Street Naming and Numbering solution (NSNN) is based on the British Standard for addressing BS7666 and the World Bank conventions for street naming and numbering. Originally developed to help standardise the street naming and numbering process for local authorities in the UK, this software can be used to automatically create and allocate addresses both at a national and regional level.
Customisable to reflect your way of working, this national addressing solution enables you to manage the complete lifecycle of this process in a standardised and logical format. The resultant electronic register of your street naming and numbering cases and supporting documentation makes the monitoring of current and historic cases easy, eliminating the need for cumbersome paper files.
Our National Street Naming and Numbering solution can be used across any region, be it remote, rural or densely populated urban areas including complex or disorganised, informal settlements.
Central repository of addresses
Once a region or nation has created its street names and property numbers, our specially adapted National Street Naming and Numbering solution will enable you to centrally manage and share that data across all the relevant departments and operational systems. Any government, local or central, emergency service or private company that relies on accurate, consistent address data will enjoy the time and budget efficiencies created by this central repository of true address data.
Benefits of implementing our national addressing solutions
Benefits for central and local government
For central and local government, the benefits might include more efficient domestic and commercial property tax collection; improved control over on-going development and the ability to better monitor and minimise property related corruption and crime, such as ownership fraud, tax avoidance or unauthorised building.
Benefits for emergency services
With accurate addressing being shared across an emergency service or collaboration of emergency services, response times will be improved and the relevant crews will be mobilised quicker, and to the correct address. This helps all the emergency services to better safeguard the public, whether it’s a fire crew, police team or ambulance. In addition to this, it will enable fire and rescue services to take a more accurate approach to fire prevention activities.
Benefits for utilities and other service providers
With a central register of accurate addresses, a whole range of services can be better provided, enabling more efficient planning and billing. Services that would benefit from this would include water, electricity, sewage, waste collection, gas, telecoms and post to name a few.
